Dye Day: The Results Post

And now for some before and after shots

First up, the lovely laceweight.

Before, slightly 70s harvest gold:


After, rose and gold with some dark rose bits:


And the sock blank….

Before, neon pink and hideous green:


After, blues with notes of teal and pink and purple:


I’m incredibly happy with what came out of the pot!

Dye day and cars

I had a fantastic time at the dye day. The sock blank went from hideous to gorgeous, and I’m really looking forward to starting on the shawl that is destined to come from the formerly pukey yellow laceweight.

I was going to take some lovely pictures of the dyed and dried yarn today, but something stood in my way… my car wouldn’t start. So, in the morning (if I can get it started) I’m off to the garage with the little man. Sitting in a garage waiting room with a 6 month old – can it get any worse?

(The answer is yes. Just let me see what the bill will be…)
